Individual development plan
Your career path will be as individual as you are. You might choose to move vertically, you might prefer to deepen your knowledge in your field of expertise or you might decide to make lateral moves to broaden your range of skills. Whichever path you choose, you will create an individual development plan to help you to continue to grow. It helps identify the skills you need to fulfill current and future business commitments, and the available prospects to improve those skills. It is also a great opportunity to discuss your career aspirations, job satisfaction, skills and competency gaps, and priorities for learning with your manager.
Personal Business Commitments
IBM's success depends on how well all employees achieve individual goals and contribute to the company's strategic objectives. The PBC program is the means by which all IBM employees worldwide set their goals for the year and get evaluated on their performance. This program reinforces IBM's high-performance culture and differentiates employees based on their contribution to the company. To sustain marketplace leadership, we maintain an environment where every employee is encouraged to perform at an exceptional level.
